"You can't make yourself sane. You can't make yourself loving. You can't make yourself unselfish. And yet it is absolutely necessary that we be that way if we are going to hand over the direction of nature to nature. It's absolutely necessary. I'm not going to say what we should do, but simply that before we think of doing it, in this critical situation, we realize the completely illusory nature of the beings that we think we are, and get back again to the beings that we really are. Which includes all this outside world, no longer left outside".

(Alan Watts)
